I first began warming up to navy when the navy + black trend really hit the runway (and the red carpet, for that matter). Since then, I've continuously been experimenting, learning, and having fun with all of the different ways navy can be incorporated into your everyday style! In fact, I've come to the realization that navy is actually quite a versatile color staple, a "new" neutral, if you will! And ya'll know how I love my neutrals. Whether you're sporting a fun frock or your favorite pair of jeans (yesss, so perfect with denim!!!), navy is not about to let you down. Only adding to the fun, Mackenzie over at Design Darling is quite the navy fanatic (which perfectly complements her fiery red locks) and is always posting a fun outfit idea incorporating the fabulous blue hue! Here are my fav navy accessories for the week...

I've used "tetra..."-this and "doxy..."-that prescriptions over and over and about a year ago, I finally reached a tipping point that had me questioning what the products that I was either topically putting on my skin and taking in the form of a pill were really doing to my skin. I did my research, and after learning about the toxins and chemicals present in so many beauty products that are detrimental to the health of our skin, even linked to cancer (CANCER, people!), it just seemed so contradictory to the healthy lifestyle I make an effort to maintain. Think about it- we live in a society of people that are truly becoming more and more committed to exercising daily and eating all natural and organic products for the betterment of their health. Yet, we continue to use beauty products- lotions, foundations, cleansers, shampoos, the list goes on- that are full of harmful ingredients and truly hurting our bodies. Needless to say, I chose to completely shake up my beauty regime for the better.
Since becoming a fully "au naturel" beauty connoisseur, if you will, the benefits have yet to let up. (And I, for one, could not be happier!) The quality and condition of my skin is one hundred times better and best of all, I feel good about the products I am using. I feel confident about the products that are now a part of my daily beauty routine and no longer have to question the harmful effects of their ingredients.
What are you waiting for! Make the "au naturel" change, my friend, you won't be disappointed!
